What a better way to reach your client base and to thank them for their support this year than an innovative and interactive e-card. Don’t waste time running to buy cards, writing messages, addressing envelopes, purchasing postage and driving to the post office. Why not create a new and innovative solution? Try an e-card that includes flipping pages, animation, audio, video and/or music. It’s not only a great way to send holiday wishes but it’s a great way to reach your contact list and to highlight your skills in promotions. You might even just foster a chuckle or a smile from a contact that has never used your services or it might provoke a client to call you with a new project or a desire to create a similar card for their client list.
Here’s a sample of a card that we created for our holiday greeting. We mixed some fun infographics that we developed along with some fresh imagery for the holiday season. We placed this in the framework of a flipbook and added a holiday jingle at the front and back of the booklet. We also created a responsive design format so that our card works properly on all mobile devices.

Revel in the festivity. Create your own holiday card and break out of the mold of the same old tired greeting cards and white elephant gifts. It’s about time. Enjoy!
